Female Athlete Doesn’t Want To Change in Front of Male — Told To “Seek Counseling”
(RepublicanNews.org) – The controversy surrounding transgender athletes participating in competitions for their biologically opposite sexes has grown increasingly heated as of late. Most notable is men transitioning into women and dominating female sports. One woman has come forward to criticize the idea of biological men wanting inclusion in women’s sports, particularly taking issue as a female having to change in front a male.
Lia Thomas’ Opponent Says Women Were Told To ‘Seek Counseling’ If Uncomfortable With Changing In Front Of Male https://t.co/sZsVwektLU

Riley Gaines, a former swimmer for the University of Kentucky (UK), recently joined Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) on “Fox and Friends” to discuss standing up against the idea of men competing in women’s sports and the pushback she has received. Gaines asserted that Ivy League schools intimidated and threatened female swimmers who spoke out against University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, a biological male, competing in the NCAA championship.
Gaines noted that in one email from the Ivy League told women if they felt uncomfortable “changing in an area” where they might be exposed to “male genitalia,” they should “seek counseling.” The former UK swimmer noted the email even provided some resources for the recipients to seek counseling.
Thomas became the center of national attention after transitioning to a female and competing in women’s swimming. The athlete was originally in men’s swimming but made a switch after the transition. The NCAA allowed them to compete in the championship, where Thomas, unsurprisingly, beat the other competitors. The issue has sparked serious debates across the country, leading to some states prohibiting students from competing in sports opposite of their biological sexes.
Perhaps instead of forcing one group to accept someone from the opposite sex into their sport, there could be transgender-based competitions. Men who’ve become women could compete against one another, and vice-versa. That way, no one has any biological advantages over the other, and everyone still gets to compete.
